Jack Black & Jason Segel, “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy”

Wow, was not expecting this!  And by not expecting, I mean Jack Black and Jason Segel’s tribute to Bing Crosby/David Bowie is actually pretty good!  And also?  All proceeds from this single will benefit Blue Star Families.

“Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy 2010” will be sold exclusively on iTunes beginning Tuesday December 7. Additionally, a 2-D animated video for “Little Drummer Boy” will premiere on CollegeHumor.com that same day.  “This old chestnut was dying to be rockified…enjoy” explained Black on his choice of song.

Blue Star Families is a nonprofit organization created by real military families, acting as the bridge between the military community, the shapers of policy affecting military life, and the nation.  The American military is the most diverse in the world and our members are equally diverse, including military spouses, parents, and families from all branches of service, including the National Guard and reserves. Blue Star Families seeks to connect, support and empower military families by offering solutions that make military family life more sustainable.

The sad reality is this will probably be the best thing to come from the Gulliver’s Travels remake.

    A Holiday Thought…

    Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife – birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal – health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
